Outstanding photographers. We couldn't have asked for better.

Peter and Paul were incredible, just truly incredible. I'm looking through my pictures and writing this with overwhelming emotion just at how pleased we are with their work. Not only are their images just beautiful but the way they handled the guests and got them all together for us told us where to be and at what time and suggested ideas for great pictures was just brilliant. Truly professional and masters at what they do.

Captured us, our family and friends, and the occasion perfectly.

We can't recommend Morgan James Photography enough. Peter photographed our wedding and he captured us, our family and friends, and the occasion perfectly.

He is engaging, funny and enthusiastic - a great person to be around - and is the most talented photographer. His eye for detail and making the most of the light and the surroundings is exceptional.
Peter puts everyone at ease and, by the end of the day, everyone was sad to see him go! Our photos are perfect - thank you, Peter.

Peter, you absolutely exceeded our expectations and we can鈥檛 thank you enough :-)

I couldn鈥檛 recommend Peter more, from meeting him at a wedding fayre in 2018 to our engagement shoot and then a twice postponed wedding, he has been fab from start to finish.
He made the bridal party feel at ease, and my flower girl absolutely loved him. Nothing was too much to ask, and the photos we have seen so far are absolutely gorgeous.
We had a fairly big wedding and Peter managed to round everyone up for photos with ease and had everyone cracking up.
Can鈥檛 thank you enough, Peter, you absolutely exceeded our expectations and we can鈥檛 thank you enough :-)

They're bonkers - we love it!

There are lots of important decisions to make when planning your wedding, but one of the most important in my opinion is choosing who to take all of those special photographs on the big day, as those are the snapshots of memories that you will take with you forever. We are so pleased we chose for Morgan James Photography to capture those memories.

Not only did Pete and Jed capture some amazing portraits of me and my husband, our guests and the venue...they also picked out so many little moments we might have otherwise missed; my dad's expression as he hugged me on my wedding morning, the cheeky sideways glance my husband and I shared during the best man's speech, guests chuckling at the anecdotes being shared. Being able to look back at these moments is so incredibly special. Having two photographers with Morgan James Photography means that you really get an amazing level of coverage throughout the day.

The drone was also such a special touch and meant that we got some really unique wedding photos that otherwise wouldn't have been possible!

So many of our guests commented on the day, 'Your photographer has such great energy!', 'They're so much fun!' and 'They're bonkers - we love it!'. Pete and Jed were so passionate, funny and charasmatic...they are absolutely wonderful!

We would not hesitate for one moment to recommend Morgan James Photography to any couple tying the knot!

We felt like King and Queen of the castle on our special day and Peter captured that perfectly.

Peter and the team were amazing from the moment they arrived. Made us all laugh and put us at ease. I was amazed by the number of photos taken during the day, but it meant that every angle of the wedding was captured. From beautifully posed photos, natural photos and of course photos with the drone. Peter knew the BEST places to have photos done at Hensol Castle and went above and beyond to capture the right photos for us that we can cherish for a lifetime.

We had photos back straight away, which was amazing for us to relive the day. We even had photos back ON THE DAY with a video showing our evening guest's photos from the day. Everyone said how much of an amazing touch it was. Our guests were even given a QR code so they could follow the photos being uploaded. It meant that everybody could relive the day as well.

We felt like King and Queen of the castle on our special day and Peter captured that perfectly. Thank you so much for capturing the amazing memories for us!

His photographs captured the day perfectly

Great photographer! Pete has so much enthusiasm and his energy is infectious. He is so friendly and his passion for what he does is clear. His photographs captured the day perfectly and being able to see some of the images in a slideshow at the evening reception was such an unexpected added bonus.

Capturing the Magic of Our Special Day =- Just an Incredible Wedding Photographer

We recently had the pleasure of having Morgan James Photography capture our big day and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. From the very beginning, Peter impressed us with his professionalism, talent, and warm demeanour, making our wedding day truly unforgettable.

From the moment his team arrived, it was clear that he was not just there to capture pictures but to create an experience for us and our guests. They seamlessly blended in with the crowd, putting everyone at ease, and making everyone feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. Their ability to interact with our guests and family members was exceptional. We received countless compliments about their friendly and approachable nature, which helped make the day even more enjoyable.

What truly sets Peter and his team apart, however, is their artistic eye and attention to detail. They didn't just capture moments; they captured emotions, relationships, and the essence of our special day. The images they produced are nothing short of breathtaking. Each photo tells a story, and we are so grateful to have these memories to cherish forever.

During the planning process, Peter was incredibly responsive and accommodating and catered to my every question. He took the time to understand our vision and preferences, ensuring that every important moment was documented. His communication and organisation were impeccable, making us feel confident in his abilities throughout the entire process.

The turnaround time for receiving our photos was surprisingly quick, and the results exceeded our expectations. The high-resolution images were delivered in a beautifully presented online gallery, making it easy to share our precious memories with friends and family and for them to purchase prints if they wished.

In summary, we can't recommend this wedding photographer highly enough. They not only captured the beauty of our wedding day but also enhanced it by making everyone feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. Peter's remarkable talent and personable nature are a rare combination that makes him stand out in his field. If you want a photographer who will not only capture your wedding but also become a beloved part of your day, look no further. He is a true professional, a gifted artist, and an absolute joy to work with. Thank you for making our day so special!
Leah and Liam
